Mary S. McGill
Ms. Mary S. McGill did not grow up in the Brooklyn community, but became a member of Friendship Baptist Church in 1949, commuting from the Mount Holly area. Sister McGill recounted memories of her activity as a Deaconess and leader in the music ministries of the Church. She and Deacon Walter Kennedy recorded the first album for the Church and continued recording after moving from Brooklyn to help raise money for choir robes and other items the Church needed.
Sister McGill was also the Chairwoman of the Missionary Study and had much to say about the life of the pastor at the time in Brooklyn, Reverend Kerry. Sister McGill mentioned many places of business and locations of other Churches in the Brooklyn area and what stands in their places today. Ms. McGill participated in a group interview with other members of Friendship Baptist Church.
